Hot Air Balloon Party – Wallternatives Fabric Decals

I’ve always loved hot air balloons. I think they are just majestic!  I’ve been wanting to design a set of printables to host a hot air balloon party – it just hadn’t happened…yet.  I say ‘yet’ because when I met the wonderful people at Royal Design Studio (you know – the stencil people?) while at the Snap Conference, the time was right!  You see, they have a new product called Wallternatives– removable fabric wall art.   (Oh my – go check it out – SO many cute and fun patterned options!)  The hot air balloons are adorable! I KNEW that I had to host a hot air balloon party using these FAB new Wallternatives.

A little background: If you’ve hosted a baby shower, 9 times out of 10 you are trying to match either the mom’s style or the nursery.  And what better way to match the nursery than to use the actual decor from the shower on.the.wall!?!  The printables were fun to design:  I designed everything to match the colors in the Wallternatives Fabric Decals and voila!  The Hot Air Balloon Party was ready to go!  (More on the Wallternatives below.)

Hot Air Balloon Party

These hot air balloon decals are PERFECT!   And the best part?  You can decorate at the party and then re-apply (WITH EASE) to the walls in the nursery.  Seriously – if I can do it – you can totally do it!

Let’s Eat Grandpa created this gorgeous fabric bunting!

See that cute “baby” decoration?  Yep – I made that!  It was really easy – you’d be surprised!  I can’t wait to show you how I did it. The tutorial will be available soon.

I have to tell you how EASY it was to use the custom fabric decals!  Wallternatives shipped them and they arrived in perfect condition.   For the party, I actually applied the hot air balloon directly to the clean glass of the picture frame.   Once the party was over, I removed it and applied it to my son’s bedroom wall.  Look how great it looks! Large vinyl hot air balloon decals were perfect for my party and my son’s room!



I’ve actually put these on my son’s wall – moved them to my daughter’s wall – and they now are hung in my kid’s bathroom! (Score – I totally have a theme for that jack and jill bathroom!  SO easy to move and re-apply!

You might have questions about Wallternatives – I know I did.  This is straight from their product description:

WallPrints™ Fabric Decals

  • WallPrints™ Fabric Decals are using a 4-color printing process printed on a premium polyester fabric backed with a revolutionary repositionable adhesive. Simple peel & stick to any smooth surface. Removable. Reusable.
  • WallPrints™ Fabric Decals’ material does not peel, rip or wrinkle, and even if the adhesive side folds on itself it can be pulled apart with ease. Test for yourselves and see!
  • WallPrints™ can be moved and re-applied over and over again as long as the adhesive remains clean. Unlike similar fabric decal materials on the market, the repositionable adhesive will NOT weaken or strengthen over time, meaning you can leave your WallPrint up for a day or for 10 years, and it will still remove easily, without creating any surface damage or leaving adhesive residue.
  • Our WallPrints™ material is US patented, green and nontoxic. It contains no PVC, Phthlates, Glycol-ether or Formaldehyde, and is environmentally friendly and bio-degradable over time.
  • Many of our WallPrints™ Design Packs and Mural Sets are intended for interactivity, allowing YOU to be the designer with more creative choices for layout and placement.

They have SO many ideas to decorate your home – and if you are fickle like me…you’ll totally want to try out the removable art!

Thanks for visiting and checking out my party using Wallternatives!  Stay tuned for a few tutorials as well as more information regarding the vendors I used so you can host your own Hot Air Balloon Party using my party printables.
